All being well, this will be the last news update to come out in this format, as I intend to release the HTML 5 to the upper levels of this site during the weekend of the 30th/31st March.  As it stands, most of the main elements are set up and in theory I could deploy it immediately and still have most of the existing functionality available.   The main issue I've had is with internal site-searching, but I believe that I have now found a solution that works based on the existing facility.  It is likely that I will conduct at least one more in-situ test prior to deployment, but I am confident that the changeover will occur as scheduled, if not before, even if I have make some refinements after deployment (which may well happen anyway).
As far as collection conversions stand, the "Nature" collections are now complete and "Heritage Properties" has only two collections remaining to do, neither of which exceeds 28 photographs, so they shouldn't take too long to convert.  "Art" has three remaining collections, the largest of which is 36 photographs, so I hope I can get those converted as well. 
As to those "Event" collections remaining unconverted at the changeover, my current plan is to dial back on these conversions while I deal with converting the railway sites.   These I plan to do before the end of June, at which point I plan to upgrade my computer, but not re-install the old website design software; remaining items will have be converted using the source code files for reference.   After that I want to concentrate on new material and return to collection conversion at the end of 2019.
I did manage some photography in February, although not as much as I had hoped to do, and most still remains unprocessed.   Hopefully, March will see an increase in work.
Looking beyond March, I'm intending to concentrate on the areas that I didn't manage last year (I'm not going to produce a list as I think that's just asking for trouble bearing in mind the events of last year).  I don't think I will be doing the 2019 Cropthorne Walkabout as I feel that I'm starting to repeat myself with it, and would benefit from leaving it for a few years.   I'm also beginning to think that the same may apply to "Wartime in the Vale", but I will make a decision nearer the time on that.

I have yet to make a final decision on Evesham River Festival 2011 and the Evesham 10k run 2009; I feel that leaving these as examples of events where I was Official Photographer might not be a bad idea.   However, I'm currently veering towards keeping them.
